Markle, a native Angeleno, was spotted in Edinburgh wearing a hand full of stacking rings. She paired these with her lavish engagement ring, made by court jewelers Cleave & Company. Of the engagement ring, Prince Harry said in an interview with the BBC, “The ring is obviously yellow gold because that’s [Markle’s] favorite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection, to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.” Markle continued to show her fashion savvy by pulling a high-look and mixing the royal jewels with an insanely affordable ring from a Brooklyn-based designer.
The Brooklyn-based jeweler Catbird, known for chic hipster baubles confirmed to Us Weekly last week that Markle was wearing the label’s Threadbare Ring, $44, a “whisper-thin” style hammered from a 55mm wide piece of solid 14K gold.
A stone’s throw away from both the famous Peter Luger Steakhouse and the uber cool Nitehawk Cinema, Catbird is located on the popular Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. The label is a member of the CFDA, and certified Made in New York. Everything from the Catbird line is made in the store’s Brooklyn studio. The label is committed to local manufacturing and ethically sourced materials, using only conflict-free stones.
